What is a Certified Menopause Practitioner?
Certified Menopause Practitioners are credentialed by the North American Menopause Society, the leading organization for promoting the health of women at midlife and beyond.
NAMS developed a set of research-based standards that ensure quality care for women as they age, as well as an examination for providers to demonstrate their expertise in the field. Certified Menopause Practitioners have access to leading research and guidelines for effectively managing menopause and stay abreast of the latest advances by engaging in continuing education.
Regional One Health’s Certified Menopause Practitioners use their expertise to give patients a deeper level of insight into how menopause impacts their health and wellbeing. We understand that not only have your health care needs changed, your concerns and goals have evolved as well. Working with a provider who has additional training in menopause care empowers you to make the best health care decisions for the life you want to lead.
During menopause, many women experience symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal discomfort, depression and anxiety, weight gain and more. As women age, they also have an increased risk for serious health issues including heart disease, breast cancer and osteoporosis.

By helping patients feel their best and avoid life-altering health problems, we help women thrive in their relationships, careers and passions. Our services include:
- Women’s wellness and gynecologic exams
- Screening for breast cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, etc.
- Management of menopause symptoms
- Sexual health support
